I tripped in the terminal at Detroit Metro Airport, fell and landed on my Macbook, cracking the LCD screen. Apple wanted $1200 to fix it!?
The repair went flawlessly. The instructions are phenominally detailed. The tools I ordered for assembly made the process easier than I expected.
The one key is to be VERY organized with the parts you take off. Have a container for each set of screws you take off and keep the containers lined up in the order you took them off.
